I liked the book. It was the first one that I read when I started to watercolor. There is a lot of good information there and an excellent color wheel.
The font however was so artistic that it was a labored read. The projects along the way were short on instruction. Some projects were strung out through the book. It has exercises however that will help you learn. Like painting with the secondary color triad as the only colors either straight or mixed.
